"..."Deliriums" is a show in which three separate mechanical constructions have been designed and built to replicate, musically, presentations of human mental health aberrations. If we call those constructions "robots," as the gallery notes do, you'll think of something more humanoid than the programmed and beautiful mechanisms on display at Northern-Southern; so maybe just stick with "mechanisms." But if you're familiar with Steinke's devices, from having attended previous exhibitions and concerts featuring them, then you'll know to expect a couple of those aesthetically appealing, wood-and-metal, self-playing automata in the N-S space...."
"...Picture the inside of a large white cube, traversed by an equatorial crack. This is the first room of Shawn Camp's solo show "Equivocation" at Northern-Southern Gallery..."
"..."The sound of your breath is the soundtrack to these waves going in and out and will set the pace." Marchesseault's painted waves are themselves a part of her personal meditative practice, strokes applied in time with an exhalation, a practice she says an artist showed her to help in creating straight lines and perfect curves. At the Northern-Southern gallery in East Austin, there are no straight lines, but rather a selection of paintings filled with nothing but these nesting S-curves...."
"..."The first pieces were really literal," recalls Camp, whose newest exhibition, "Aphotic Zone," is now on display at Northern-Southern Gallery. "I was using photographs that I'd taken, kind of compiling them together to some degree, and even including cars and roads and buildings..."
"..."The first pieces were really literal," recalls Camp, whose newest exhibition, Aphotic Zone, opens this Friday night at Northern-Southern Gallery. "I was using photographs that I’d taken, kind of compiling them together to some degree, and even including cars and roads and buildings..."
"...My friend Bill Cotter, the author of the terrific novels Fever Chart and The Parallel Apartments, is also a dealer in rare books: An essay he wrote about that occupation was recently awarded a Pushcart prize. The man's professional bibliomongering is why, when I was scoping out the works on display at Northern-Southern Gallery's current "Letters" exhibition, I thought of him..."
"...1) "FIVE SKIN TEN SKIN" (Dimension Gallery) As if Ian Ingram's stunning painterly skills weren't enough, the artist turned the extreme-close-up visions of his selfward-facing eye into three-dimensional structures of portraiture in exquisitely tortured wood and metal that, Jesus, we can't even with the man's newest works at Dimension Gallery...."
"..."Deliriums," showing throughout June and July at the Northern-Southern Gallery, is an art installation combining robotics, sculpture, found sounds, and music to mimic the essence of personality disorders. The presentation consists of three instrument concepts, each representing the "monster manual's" defined categories..."
"...3) You feel like indulging your taste for visual art this weekend, as a sort of warm-up to the vivid juggernaut of the imminent East Austin Studio Tour? You’re in luck, because all the different galleries in Flatbed Press World HQ are having opening receptions this Friday night – that’s Recspec and Camiba and Shoal Creek and Flatbed itself … and then, on Saturday, there’s the triumphant return of Northern-Southern Gallery and a new show at Art.Science.Gallery. But, oh, you wanna stay all Westside that night instead? Suggestion: Chris Guarino’s “Addressing the Melancholy” at Art on 5th...."
"...But how can we not pimp it here? We love those John-Pauls, and not just because we work with Mark John-Paul on a daily basis. And not just because their frontman, that Phillip Niemeyer, runs the remarkable Northern-Southern Gallery whose exhibitions have sometimes knocked us sideways with beauty..."
"...First, from right here in the ATX, the wall-poster calendar from Philip Niemeyer's Northern-Southern Gallery. It's a gorgeously designed single-sheet, the perfect adornment for a favored vertical surface, sure to appeal to those enamored of 1) chromatic beauty and 2) graphic minimalism..."
"...3) How does “three acoustic robots singing to each other, round-robin style, mimicking a group therapy session” sound as a concept? Like it’s a sketch from SNL when SNL is actually worth watching? Like, maybe sometime after the Singularity? But, no, this is “Deliriums,” a legit art installation that's happening right now, and it’s created by that mechanical savant Matthew Steinke. The local and musically inclined tinkerer who’s delighted the city with robot-driven holiday concerts now brings us his latest exhibition – with a opening reception at Northern-Southern Gallery this Saturday night...."
"...It's been a strong year for Alyssa Taylor Wendt. The artist's mysterious work was seen throughout 2015, in individual pieces or small groups at Northern-Southern Gallery, POP Austin, Art Alliance's Artbash, Co-Lab Projects screenings, and her studios during the East Austin Studio Tour..."
"...But not the amazing stuff that’s up at Northern-Southern and Dimension Gallery right now. That stuff generates sound..."
"...W&TW's entire gallery was turned over to this talented Hammonds, who used it to reconstruct – with wall-sized drawings, with video projections, with complex sculpture in the center of the space – what happened to the structure of her childhood home (and the subsequent structure of her memories) when that building burned down a week after her 15th birthday. 6) NONOTAK (POP Austin: Illumination)..."

"...Snapshot of a moment in the cultural life of Central Texas. On a sunny Thursday morning in a gallery in Austin's Uptown Cultural District, a handful of people who all share a passion for photography and for the region encompassing Mexico and the southwestern United States gather round a table for a conversation..."
